At Five Marys, we exclusively offer uncured bacon (which hasn’t been treated with sodium nitrate), cut from the belly and side of the pig. Our bacon is hickory smoked, fatty, and flavorful. It will be a delicious addition to any breakfast meal, BLT, or other recipe.
Bacon ends are the pieces left after a bacon slab is cut into the traditional strips that you’re used to. They pack a powerful flavor because they consist of the surface which was in contact with the spices and brown sugar during the smoking process. Bacon ends are cut into small cubes and chunks – perfect for putting on a salad, filling tacos, or adding to soup recipes.
Our specialty uncured jowl bacon is a rare treat! From the pork cheeks, it is a delicious treat much like bacon, but some claim it’s even better. Only two small portions on each hog! It’s the perfect addition to any breakfast meal, BLT, pasta dish, and more.
JOWL BACON ENDS
These are the ends and pieces of the jowl bacon cuts… just as delicious and no need to chop! It’s perfect to add to soups, sauces, any type of breakfast hash, and more!
Pork belly is uncured, un-smoked, and un-sliced bacon. Don’t let its name confuse you – the pork belly is cut from the meat on a pig’s side, not the stomach. Like sliced bacon, it has juicy fat layers, which offer amazing flavor. You can oven-roast it, fry it, or use it to make your own bacon!
